      It's the most wonderful time of year...or is it? Christmas Eve is a night of mystery and magic, but not always in ways we expect. Things lurk in the shadows and they're not the least bit jolly or merry. Let's just say some presents are better left unopened. ‘

  1. My favourite part of Christmas is Boxing Day. All the fuss is over, and (with luck) I have a new book to read, and can point hungry people at the fridge. I know, it is a sad attitude. Christmas can yank on so many heart strings... I will volunteer on a crisis line on the day itself, and be very, very thankful for my many blessing by the time I get home.

  2. I love it all! Talking on the phone to family scattered across the country, all the lights, snow, special foods and a good book to curl up with.

  3. My favorite part of the holiday season is going out and looking at Christmas light decorations with my family!

  4. I know some of the authors in that book!
    Don't think I have a favorite horror story around Christmas. Unless it was the year my sister-in-law set the stove on fire.

  5. Thanks for sharing this, Mason. I'm always a fan of any author who can entice young people to read. And these stories sound like a good way to do exactly that.

  6. My favorite thing is time spent with family, especially if we are fortunate to visit family out of town or have them at our house.

  8. Spending time with family and celebrating with wonderful meals. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com
